Morning Drop-In Play

Our drop-in playrooms are open to anyone caring for a child, aged zero to six years old.

We have play equipment, toys, books, and crafts. We have snacks for kids and coffee or tea for adults. And, we have circle time every day.

No need to register. Just show up.

DAD & TOT NIGHT

Looking for an opportunity to connect with other Dads / Step-Dads / Grandads / Uncles? Look no further.

This free program is aimed at male-identified caregivers with children under school age. The program is typically at Victoria Hall (3435 Victoria Drive) on the last Wednesday of each month from 6:00pm-7:30pm. Double check on the monthly calendar or call our office for details on the specific activity for this month as we sometimes have special outings. 

Dinner (usually pizza) is provided.

We are grateful to Noura Homes for generously sponsoring Dad and Tot Night. 

Resource & Toy Library

A Resource and Toy Lending Library is available to members and is housed in our office building at Victoria Hall.

The library has a wide variety of toys and books for all ages of children. A few toys and books are available for children who are over five years old. Adult books and videos are available on a variety of parenting topics from prenatal to the teenage years. There are also self-help books, a variety of pamphlets from other agencies, a Red Book of services and a map of the surrounding area for parks, schools and community centres.

Families are encouraged to borrow books and toys for one week.  Adult books are loaned for two to three weeks because we understand how difficult it can be for parents to find time to read for themselves.

The Family Place Toy Lending Library is open when Family Place is open.
